Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Tho' all others may forsake,
There's One whose faithfulness is sure;
Naught my faith in Him can shake,
For in His care I am secure.

Chorus:
Jesus is the Friend for me,
Ever true to Him I'll be;
He's my Pilot o'er life's sea,
He's the Friend of friends to me.

2 Darkness comes, I lose my way,
Unconsciously afar I roam;
Then I hear my Shepherd say;
"Fear not, My child, I'll guide you home." [Chorus]

3 When the storms beat round my soul,
And I would perish in despair,
Jesus comes and takes control
And guides me safely ev'rywhere. [Chorus]

4 When at last I leave this shore
And face the land of cloudless day,
When the fearful breakers roar,
He will be near to lead the way. [Chorus]
